I love Instagram. I'm a little bit addicted. :D It's just such a fun way to share a little bit of your life! If you'd like to follow me I'm gibsongirl726. I'll follow back!

I plan in 2013 to join the Insta-Friday crowd, but for now I'd like to just get through December. The whole entire month. Can you handle it? (You can't HANDLE the truth!!!) #excusememyageisshowing

So. Starting with the top row and going left:
1. 6 days before our move-out date our building is getting heat!
2. This little boy can't get enough curried veggies! 
3. I spotted these amazingly adorable dresses at Target today. My first thought was WHY don't I have a girl??? Then I saw the price- $100 for one and a little less for the other. Target? Seriously?
4. At Kohl's. I think this grumpy trio needs lunch!
5. Just as good as I remember it! #Ilovelettucewraps
6. Stop #4, the mall. #mykidsaretroopers  
7. House of Style. #goodbyelonglocks  
8. Going blonde! And donating 14 inches to Locks of Love.
9. The new me!
10. Ok, I never posted this on Instagram, but I should have! My friend taped black construction paper to their coffee table and drew roads and buildings on it for his son's cars. There's a big white paper "road" around the outside. Love the creativity!
11. I love fall!
12. My J in the pretty yellow leaves. (Also never posted!)
13. J loves Jojo! (not posted)
14. Jared loves Jojo too! (not posted)

Starting with the top left and going across...
1. Goodbye Weimar!
2. I love the lighting at Chevy's!
3. *not posted* Jonathan made a cross with Jesus on it from the dough they give the kids to play with at Chevy's. That boy!
4. Enjoyed the Christmas tree at Gibson's tonight. (Glenn & Missy's place)

14. Playing with Grandpa. (Love the look on my dad's face!)
15. *not posted* Picnic tables at Plan B are from a kit available at Lowe's for about $80. I would so do this in my kitchen!

Starting at the top left and going across:
1. Bathtime at Grandma Joycie's! (This was even more special given that there wasn't a bathtub the whole 4 months at Weimar! Little Josiah loves to lay down in the water. Cute cute cute!) #nonakedbabybuttsforyou 
2. *not posted* Mom read Pickle Juice to the boys. It was a random children's book my brother and I got at the library in the early 1980s. Luke memorized the words and we had a scratchy recording on cassette of him "reading" the story. He had the cutest little boy voice and "pickle juice" sounded like "pikko duce". He's now a rocket scientist. Literally. My boys love the story of their Uncle Luke when he was their age. Aw...
3. I made one of these with glittery ornaments and now the house and I are covered with glitter! Make it stop!!
